Hi

I am currently studying for my private pilots license in the UK. When I am flying I ask the local RAF station for a basic service. My question is how do I know what service I can get from an aerodrome by looking at a map? I have noticed LARS which is lower airspace radar service and also VDF which is to do with VHF direction finding?

If I however require a basic service, a procedural service or a traffic service then how can I find out if the service is offered. I considered checking the AIP but its no good if I am in the air.

Regards,

Ross

Here in the US, our gov't nav charts (FAA/NOAA) have basic info, supplemented by private companies (like Jeppesen and AOPA)

When in the air, at first contact we always tell students to identify themselves as "student pilot" to garner the most assistance and patience from ATC (usually helps!)
